Yummy Diet Review:It’s hard to describe the struggle when you’re a food blogger yet you’re also watching your weight at the same time. Ever since I’ve started writing about food (which I really love!), I’ve gained a great deal of weight, getting to 145lbs from a mere 120-ish.
I recently enrolled for a full-year membership at the gym, and during the fitness evaluation, it was found out that my current weight is actually still normal given my age and height however, it’s the composition of what makes up this weight that is a bit problematic. My body has more fat than muscle (ouch), and the challenge now is lose (or keep) the same weight with having more muscle than fat.
As a food blogger I knew that giving up my love for grub would be futile, so I made it a habit to hit the gym after I indulge in oh so glorious food. Thing is, I still need a little bit of push to be able to lose weight, and we know that exercise is pretty much useless without proper diet. Then there’s the problem of healthy food mostly being…well…not tasty.
My dilemma of wanting to eat healthy food, yet still enjoy a delicious meal was resolved when I gave Yummy Diet a shot. It’s one of the biggest diet delivery services in the Philippines, offering various meal plans such as low calorie, low carb-high protein and meals with cold-pressed juice replacement. Since I’m looking for the best diet deliveries in Manila, I tried their 5-day meal plan (1.2K calories, no rice) and it just left me asking for more. Here are what I had in those 5 days:

All the foods that I had were so delicious; it’s hard to believe that they’re just 1,200 calories per day! I’m not a huge fan of veggies but surprisingly, even the leafy greens and tofu in my meal tasted great. They definitely justified the “yummy” part of their name.
But how about the “diet” part? I kid you not when I say that just a week after I had yummy diet, my officemates started noticing the change in my figure. I can feel it for myself too, with some of my clothes fitting better. Of course, I couldn’t attribute it to Yummy Diet alone. I gave my best that week and regularly went to the gym while having my diet (I mostly did cardio because I don’t think I have enough energy for weights while dieting). One always has to go with the other to be effective.
I’m not saying that Yummy Diet is some miracle solution that’s guaranteed to make you lose weight. It’s more of a convenient meal planner to assist you with your fitness goals. There are tons of other ways and programs being offered out there to lose weight, but if you’re somebody like me who find it hard to sacrifice their love for great-tasting food – Yummy Diet would be your go-to menu.
